Would you like to meet for a coffee?

Usually I meet with my friends in the club . because it is a quite place and all the people the are engineers like us . and we meet usually in our days off.

The fact that I haven't got many friends. But, I have any best friends. Sometimes, I meet her at her home or my home. Then, we go shopping, coffee, eating, etc ... I usually meet my friend on my free day or sometimes after work. On that days, we often chat, talk about work, life ... And I feel relax when I meet my friend.

I usually meet my friends at coffee after 6 o'clock pm.

I am so sad, I feel now I dont have a friend that can be accompany . They are bussy with their activity and their new friend else :(. Anybody wanna be my friend :D


we used to meet at class and stay together till to left home

Nowadays, it is really difficult to tell where I meet my friends due to our busy schedules. Anyway, we usually meet at my place or one of their places.

we don't have particular time or place it could be anywhere

All my Friends are Have a Job, Sometimes i meet they after 6 in the evening,and somedays we all together meet in weekend

At school and university I meet my friends (male/female) anywhere in the school and university environment. We usually meet anytime. We meet each other without any discussion before. They find me then we get together. It's up to them. At the office, outside my job as helpdesk years ago, I only meet friends that sit in the same room with me and their friend who come to visit them then go with them if they ask me to go with them. When I still work at the office an old friend ask me to meet in a building (where there are a hypermarket, shops, food courts, restaurants, and fast foods) near my office then she finds me where ever I am there, after we met, we decide where we want to eat. The other old friends visit me in the office as guests without exact times but surely I vacant for them on that time. So, in this lesson I learn to communicate and discuss well to plan a date.
